Night Goblin Archers

Raining arrows from a distance is the preferred Greenskin tactic.

Night Goblins are well suited to their subterranean existence. They range in size, but many are on the stunted side, which better enables the spiteful creatures to move quickly through the tight cavernways below ground. Night Goblins are easily marked out from other Greenskins as they wear long, dark, hooded cloaks, in part to blend in with the poorly lit tunnels but mostly to protect themselves from the hated sunlight should they venture above ground. Given a choice, Night Goblins only leave their underground lairs at night or when the sun is shrouded by cloud or gloomspell. When they do emerge, Night Goblins launch deadly raids, ambush travellers in mountain passes, and commit countless other malicious deeds. They are particular enemies of the Dwarfs, and the two races share a long history of bitter battles on mountainous peaks and below ground.

Attributes

  • {{tr:guerrilla_deployment}}
  • Stalk
    This unit can move hidden in any terrain.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Weak Against Armour
    This unit's attack can hardly punch through armour and is thus wasted on heavily armoured enemies.
  • Vanguard Deployment
    This unit can deploy in an expanded deployment area, allowing it to start the battle within striking distance of the enemy - or somewhere unexpected.
  • Poor Leadership
    This unit suffers from poor Lord or other encouraging units nearby.
  • Poison Attacks
    The poisonous attacks of this unit weaken the target's speed and damage, whilst reducing its vigour.
